    Cal McCorkle has lived in Bluewater Bay his whole life. He works two jobs to support a brother with a laundry list of psychiatric diagnoses and a great-uncle with Alzheimer's, and his personal life amounts to impersonal hookups with his boss. He's got no time, no ambition, and no hope. All he has is family, and they're killing him one responsibility at a time. Avery Kennedy left Los Angeles, his family, and his sleazy boyfriend to attend a Wolf's Landing convention, and he has no plans to return.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes. It is very sweet and touching.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Deep of the Sound?

    Towards the end when Cal's Uncle does something surprising that changes all their lives.


    What about Nick J. Russo’s performance did you like?

    Everything. Nick J Russo is one of my favorite narrators. He has a smooth sultry voice and a way of making the character come alive.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I think everything about Cal moved me. He is a young man that gave up his life to take care of his uncle and brother with very serious, difficult issues.


    Any additional comments?

    Cal is working two jobs so he can take care of his uncle with Alzheimer's and his brother with lots of psychological disorders. he barely puts food on the table most days and never has time for a life of his own.
    One day he stops to help a young man with car troubles and finds himself with a friend and possibly more, but how will he ever make time for a relationship of any kind.
    Avery is a sweet young man that comes to Blue water bay for a wolf's Landing convention and decides to stay since he has a bad break up.
    I loved both young men and even Cal's family. The story is sweet and Nick's narration kept me engaged trough the afternoon and I finished it all in one sitting.

    The suspicious death of Dante Bartholomew's wife changed him, especially in the eyes of the residents of St. Giles. They no longer see a successful businessman...only a monster they believe was involved. Dante's horrific reputation eclipses the truth to the point that he sees no choice but to isolate himself and his heart. The plan backfires when he meets counselor Beau Clarity and the children he works with. Beau and the kids see beyond the beastly reputation to the beautiful soul inside Dante, and Dante's cold heart begins to thaw as they slip past his defenses.

    Story

    The town keeps their distance from Dante calling him them beast. Rumors and Myths abound about the death of his wife, all painting him as a monster and using his power to get out of her murder.But if he is all evil why is his staff so devoted?

    Beau a smaller, milder, kindhearted man, that runs the local mental counseling and community center, sees through the facade Dante has hidden behind. But can the beauty tame the beast?

    Oh My! The romance-aholic took hold of me on this one. The little girl in me still loves the old classics and any chance to read a new take I am like gimme gimme! Andrew Grey spun his usual magic and created two fabulous characters ( and several more because Dante's servant Roberts melted my heart as well as the housekeeper and many others. But I could just imagine the big, brooding Dante and the smaller sweeter Beau! Though opposite,(another thing I like) they went together like a moth to a flame!. Beau wasn't without his scars as well.
    SO if you like retold fairy tales, opposites attract, a fabulous romance and some hot man-love I highly highly recommend this.
    Now add in Jack Wesley's wonderful narration and make it even better. now you can listen while you work and make a menial task go so much faster!

    Simon "Frizz" Frizzell sneaks away to the rodeo on weekends, and it’s not until after he wins a buckle that he tells his parents about his bull-riding. He knows they won’t approve of his choice of sport, but his parents own a Christian bookstore, and he couldn’t possibly tell them the whole truth: He’s gay. And so are some of his rodeo friends, like Dante and Ryan, and Jacky - a young man he wishes could have been more than a one-night stand. When Simon sets his sights on his dreams, he finds work with Dante and Ryan, and bumps into Jacky on the job.

    Would you consider the audio edition of A Daring Ride to be better than the print version?

    I didn't read the print but no way can you get the emotions That John Solo brings forth.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of A Daring Ride?

    When Simon was in the hospital.


    Have you listened to any of John Solo’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes. Jon Solo is one of my favorite Narrators. I love his easy voice and passion.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    A bullrider finds not only the love of the rodeo but the love of his life.


    Any additional comments?

    I love this series and this book was amazing!.I adored Simon and Jacky. I fell in love with Jacky in the first book and couldn't wait to see more of him and his story.
    Simon is from a prominent family and a very religious one. His mom doesn't allow him to follow his dream to be a bull rider or work the rodeo circuit because she lost a brother to it. However, nothing can hold him back from his dreams. He meets Dante one of his idols and it changes his life. Dante introduces him to Jacky and they hook up, but when Simon goes to work for Dante and trains with him they are in each other's paths again.

    All I can say is hot cowboys and swoon! John Solo brings so much character and passion into this story that it melted me. The sex was moderate but tasteful yet John Solo made it melting!

    I can't wait for more in this series and I hope it is very soon!

    Wow, was I surprised at this one. The story is fast paced and you get a lot in such a short time. be prepared to listen to it all in one sitting it is that good! Both the male and the female lead is strong and appealing. I fell for Cody and his bad boy image but his gentleman ways as well. everything you want in a cowboy.. rough, rugged, handsome, hardworking, chivalrous. There are some twists and I didn't see the end coming! I highly recommend this if you like a good historical romance with hot cowboys!

    What did you love best about Change of Heart?

    I loved the opposites attract part. I loved how she felt she was dressing up and was so off the mark. I felt a touch of Pretty Woman in here.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Change of Heart?

    When she risked her life to save Finn.


    What three words best describe Skyler Morgan’s voice?

    confident, smooth, pleasant


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Yes. I did laugh a few times. its hard not to with little children involved.


    Any additional comments?

    I found Change of heart a sweet romantic story. I liked the slow burn and how The characters didn't cross the line too much of the boss coworker line. I liked how they fell so slowly they barely realized it and didn't know how to deal.
    It's an allover good story. Sweet, charming, a touch of Cinderella a touch of Pretty Woman ( no she isn't a hooker but from the other side of the tracks so to say.) There is an opposite attracts going on and The two kids you have to love.

    The narration was ok but it was a bit choppy and it felt like reading instead of acting the story. Also, the characters didn't really have a distinctive voice and it was hard to tell who was who. Val did have a southern drawl or use southern words so sometimes you could tell it was her.
    However the story was strong and in this case, I think the book may be better than the audio.

Meanwhile, Andie is drawn deeper into the manipulations of a coworker who doesn't have her best interests at heart. Andie's mother appears on the scene to help while Cade's mother suffers a horrible relapse.

    Yes, I listened to the first three books in this series Ken Bad boys for Hire, Nick Bad Boys for Hire, Ryker Bad Boys for Hire. I like his narrating a lot.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    A couple of them, but when a big secret gets revealed not only once but twice I was pretty much in shock


    Any additional comments?

    Intercepted by Love part 4 is the 4th book in this series and you do have to read in order. The books do end in a cliff hanger.
    There was lots of twists in this story. Both Andie and Cade go through many tirals and tribulations. Andie still is suffering Memory loss. There are twists that really put more stress on Cade. Just when he makes up his mind what to do to keep Andie, one more shocking twist is revealed.leaving us hanging for the next book.

    The narration is good and had me hooked on the story I listened to it on one sitting.

    When Avery Archer, an 11-year-old boy, telephones Ken Driscoll, a young accountant, and pleads for help in escaping from his kidnappers, Ken thinks the boy is playing a sick prank. But after several daily calls, Ken truly believes the boy is in danger. When Ken contacts the local police for assistance, he learns Avery was abducted 67 years ago and eaten by alligators in a nearby lake. Were they just prank telephone calls in the middle of the night, or was it a desperate cry for help?

    Story

    Let Freedom Ring is an intriguing story. I found it rather chilling at first. I listened to the audiobook and found it intriguing. I think the choice of narrator was great.
    Avery Archer is kidnapped when he is 11 years old. His father is a prominent wealthy Orange grower. He calls Ken Driscoll almost nightly begging for help.
    So far sounds normal right? the kicker is Ken finds out that Avery was kidnapped, shot in the head and tossed in the lake. his body never found.
    The story is such a nailbiter that I didn't want to stop. The plot is unique and unpredictable and I couldn't help but cheer Ken on. One thing I liked so much is that Ken is a very normal man. A tax auditor, not a police officer or military man or some alpha man. just a mild-mannered regular guy, getting ready to get married. There are so many twists that it keeps you wanting more. I tried so hard to listen in one day!
    I highly recommend this if you like suspense with a twist

    Brighton McKenzie inherited one of the last pieces of farmland in suburban Baltimore. It has been in his family since Maryland was a colony, though it has been fallow for years. Selling it for development would be easy, but Brighton wants to honor his grandfather's wishes and work it again. Unfortunately, an accident left him relying on a cane, so he'll need help. Tanner Houghton used to work on a ranch in Montana until a vengeful ex got him fired because of his sexuality. He comes to Maryland at the invitation of his cousin and is thrilled to have a chance to get back to the kind of work he loves.

    Brighton inherits his grandpa's farm. It is different from most farms as it is surrounded by a growing city. He knows nothing about farming and doesn't understand why his grandfather let it to him. His Aunt and her kids are angry and try to fight him every inch o the way. He has recently survived a bad wreck and has trouble walking. His lawyer recommends his nephew as a hired hand and Brighton interviews him. Tanner has a bad lisp and low self-image just being kicked off the ranch he had been working and shunned by his rich so-called boyfriend.
    Once again Andrew Grey brings together two broken men and makes them whole. The story is sweet and sexy.
    I listened to the audio version and love how Derrick McClain brings both of these men alive and kept me engaged in the story. I listened in one afternoon.

    The attraction between Brent Berkheimer and Scott Spearman peels the wallpaper, but Brent is Scott’s boss, and they’re both too professional to go beyond flirting. Their priorities realign after Scott is badly injured in an accident that costs him his hearing, and Brent realizes what is truly important.... He wants Scott. Scott pushes Brent away at first, fearing a new romance will just add to his problems, but perhaps he will find unexpected strength and solace in Brent’s support as he struggles to communicate with the world in a new way.

    This is a book two in Hearts entwined series. It can stand alone but if you read them in order you understand the other recurring characters much more.
    Brent has been interested in Scott since he took over the office position in his friend Trent's Garage (This happens in Heart Unseen). Scott is a lot younger than Brent and also his boss so he hasn't acted on his feelings. It has been two years and he just keeps wanting Scott more and more, and Scott's flirtations don't help.
    Tragedy strikes leaving Scott deaf and Brent decides he has waited long enough and to take a chance.

    There is lots of angst, trials, and tribulations as Scott struggles with his new disability and they both try to make the relationship work. There is a twist when it comes out who hit Scott.

    The narration was lovely and well fitting with the story. The pacing is good and you can tell who is speaking. Ar first I thought it was choppy until I realized that was how the narrator was making it known the characters were writing or signing.

    If you like office romance, Boss/employee, physically challenged, and May/December you will love this.

    It's Christmas and Cailey is alone. Her mother has died, she is divorced. Sitting at home she gets drunk watching It's a Wonderful Life and heads to the bridge thinking she has nothing to live for and everything would be better if she died. She is brutally attacked and all she can say is Gabriel Blautsauger bit her, she hates him.

    Someone is out to destroy Gabriel Blautsauger by framing him of serial killings and illegal turnings. ut the last victim lived because Gabe's sister figured out whose blood was in Cailey. Gabe corrected the bad turn and took Cailey as his.

    This is a cute story. The vampires don't sparkle but they are not vicious either... well there is the good ones and the bad ones. There is a lot of wist and turns, many surprises and the romance is hot as well.

    I loved Clarke Bellflower's voice. It is sweet, unique and she did do a few extra voices for the characters. Her accents for the vampires was cute too. I think she really made the story.

    Tried and True is book 10 in the THIRDS series and you do need to read them in order.
    Sloane and Dex are preparing for their wedding when tragedy strikes and they have to come together as a team once again to protect their loved ones and find the more in TIN.

    There is so much going on in this book its hard to tell you without a spoiler.
    I love Dex and more and more as he grows and his abilities become stronger as a hybrid Therian.He is strong, sexy, and funny. Sloane is his perfect match. They are sort of opposites, Sloane always trying to get Dex to eat healthier when he is happy with donuts and gummy bears.

    Every character in this series is amazing. most of them had their own books with the later ones being focused on Dex, Sloane and the new Team.

    There is so much action, drama, also some violence, suspense, and man-sex. There is plenty of humor to tap down the drama and violence.

    I have to admit I laughed my self to tears a few times and the Wedding was amazing. When they danced to Time of my life the tears flowed...*glares at empty tissue box and words the end.*

    I know this is the end of this series but I hope we haven't seen the end of these men.

    I absolutely love Mark Westfield. He made each character come alive and I adore the special effects he uses like the mics, phones, walkies etc.It adds such a special touch. I love the accents on the British characters and how each man has a voice of his own. I could see everything that was happening as he acted out this story.
